OREGON P-EBT PROGRAM

Looking for information about Pandemic EBT benefits for students? See the ODE website for information (ODE PEBT)

Pandemic EBT (P-EBT) is part of the response to the COVID-19 pandemic. P-EBT is money for buying food at home for students. Oregon is sending P-EBT to families with eligible students this summer. The grocery money is to make-up for meals students missed while schools and childcare were closed part-time or full-time during the 2020-21 school year. You can still get “grab-and-go” or summer meals from the school while receiving P-EBT. P-EBT is a program in partnership with the Oregon Department of Human Services (ODHS) and the Oregon Department of Education (ODE).
